Photocopied ts account (314pp) which is both a personal record of his Army service, mostly as a signaller, and a detailed history of the 21st Battalion King's Royal Rifle Corps (124th Brigade, 41st Division) until they were disbanded in March 1918. The narrative covers his enlistment from teacher training college in November 1915, training in Yorkshire and at Aldershot, December 1915 - April 1916, their introduction to trench warfare in the Ploegsteert sector, May 1916, participation in the attack on Flers (15 September 1916) and in further operations on the Somme in October, the Battles of Messines Ridge and Third Ypres in 1917 and the 41st Division's service in Italy, December 1917 - March 1918. Following the dissolution of the Battalion, he was hospitalised for some time before being posted to the 11th Battalion Queen's Own Cameron Highlanders (120th Brigade, 40th Division) in France and Belgium with whom, apart from a spell as an instructor on a signalling course, he served until his demobilisation in February 1919. The narrative emphasises the tremendous "esprit de corps" of the 21st Battalion KRRC, the fine qualities of its Wesleyan chaplain, and the dangers and hardships of life in the trenches, and also throws useful light on the morale of the other ranks. Appended to the account are copies of letters to Dennis, dated 1974 - 1976, from Lord Avon, who was a subaltern in the 21st Battalion, 1915 - 1917.
